A one-of-a-kind film experience generously sponsored by Arbor Acres, designed specifically for persons with dementia and their care partners. Watch the classic holiday musical White Christmas followed by audience discussion and reminiscence, guided by a moderator from the Wake Forest Baptist Health Memory Counseling Program. This program demonstrates how film can be a form of treatment for some of the symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s and related dementia. The cinema has the power to connect us with our deep-rooted emotional memories – the kind that never leave us.
Singers Bob Wallace (Bing Crosby) and Phil Davis (Danny Kaye) join sister act Betty (Rosemary Clooney) and Judy Haynes (Vera-Ellen) to perform a Christmas show in rural Vermont. There, they run into Gen. Waverly (Dean Jagger), the boys’ commander in World War II, who, they learn, is having financial difficulties; his quaint country inn is failing. So what’s the foursome to do but plan a yuletide miracle: a fun-filled musical extravaganza that’s sure to put Waverly and his business in the black!
